Kentucky Coach Disses Maui Invitational
Coconut Wireless Government Buys Superferries In case you were wondering what became of the Alakai and her neverlaunched sister ship the Huakai, here’s your answer: they were purchased in late September at a Virginia auction by the U.S. Maritime Administration (MARAD) for $25 million apiece. That would be the same MARAD that was owed close to $140 million by the now-bankrupt Hawaii Superferry Inc., which was controlled by J.F. Lehman & Co., which was founded by former
clear answer. Gubernatorial hopeful Neil Abercrombie provided one last week, explaining in a press conference and subsequent news release the role that Brian Schatz would play in his administration. “The days of the Lieutenant Governor not being given meaningful responsibility are over,” Abercrombie said, a not-sosubtle swipe at his Republican opponent, Duke Aiona, who has spent the last eight years as Hawaii’s number two. “There are significant opportunities through federal grants that will meet our community’s immediate needs. The key
“The days of the Lieutenant Governor not being given meaningful responsibility are over,” Abercrombie said, a not-sosubtle swipe at his Republican opponent. Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman. So: the government bought a pair of boats it basically already owned, using a loan given to a company backed by a former highranking government official. Dizzy yet? And how does MARAD plan to employ the ill-fated catamarans? No official word yet, but according to an October 12 Pacific Business News dispatch, the agency is “exploring options regarding the best use of the vessels.”
Abercrombie Announces New Lt. Gov. Duties What exactly does the Lieutenant Governor do? It’s a common question and— other than, hang around in case something happens to the Governor—there’s no
is competing for these grants successfully. Brian has a proven record in this arena.” Specifically, Schatz would head up the Hawaii Fair Share initiative, aimed at landing the state gobs of Washington cash. Schatz said he’s “excited” about the opportunity to “shore up everything from health care services to small business assistance to ocean and atmospheric programs.” In a statement responding to the announcement, Aiona dismissed the initiative as “another layer of bureaucracy” and—taking Abercrombie’s bait—defended his “close working relationship” with Gov. Lingle, which he said is “based on teamwork and collaboration.”
Texas Woman Awarded Millions In Suit Against Maui McDonald’s In November 2007, Beverly Munguia of San Angelo, Texas, slipped and fell at the McDonald’s on Dairy Road. Almost three years later, a jury awarded her $5.67 million. According to the lawsuit, filed in federal District Court, Munguia suffered “a burst compression fracture of the L1 vertebrae, and other serious physical injuries,” which resulted in “prolonged physical pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.” The cause of the accident? Something had been spilled on the floor and, the suit claims, McDonald’s failed to clean up the mess. In a written statement quoted in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, store owner Grelyn Rosario called the award “excessive.” It is double what the old lady who burned herself with coffee got, but that was 1994 dollars.
As the Valley Isle prepares to host another Maui Invitational, at least one college coach isn’t looking forward to participating. On October 11, Kentucky’s John Calipari told The Advocate-Messenger he “didn’t like” the annual tournament, which he said the team is “locked into.” “The games after that are hard,” Calipari said. “It takes away from what you have at home. That’s what you buy into. Instead of having 31 games, you have 30. That one game for this program is $600,000.” Forget that the Invitational is a rare chance for Maui sports fans to see highlevel basketball close to home; Calipari can’t be expected to care about that. But it’s interesting that he’s suddenly so concerned about his school’s bottom line, when he agreed to a $31.65 million contract last year that made him the highestpaid coach in college basketball and, according to ESPN, included perks like two cars and “membership to the country club of his choice.” But we understand—those all-expensespaid trips to Hawaii are such a backbreaker. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1417c
DOH Offers Free Flu Shots Last year at this time, seasonal illness was dominating the headlines as fear of swine ﬂu (or the less comically menacing H1N1, as public officials tried desperately to rebrand it) spread faster than a sneeze in a crowded room. This year, experts are predicting a milder cold and flu season— but vaccines are still recommended. Starting this week and running through December 2, the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) is offering free flu shots to students and faculty at schools statewide. DOH Director Chiyome Fukino said the H1N1 scare is proof the flu can be “unpredictable,” and urged everyone age six months or older to get a shot. The vaccines being offered protect against the 2009 H1N1 strain and two other types of flu. For more information, visit stopfluatschool.com.

What happened to LC Watch? Itâ€™s a question weâ€™ve been asked frequently since June, the last time this column ran. The answer is another question: what happened to the LC? Over the last three months, the Adjudication Boardâ€”the arm of the department charged with doling out punishmentâ€”considered just one new case. Sure, there were rumblings from bar owners and a little action over at the Liquor Control Commission, but all in all it was a quiet summer for our favorite county agency. Things got a little more interesting at the October 7 Adjudication meeting, which featured three cases, all minor decoy stings. For those new to the party, that means the LC, in conjunction with MPD, sends an underage kid into a liquor-selling establishment with a marked $20 bill to try to buy booze. The three busts presented at the meeting all took place over a threeweek period in June. The ďŹ rst and last casesâ€”involvingIzakayaMatsuinKihei and Kobe Steak House in Lahainaâ€” were pretty standard fare, but the other one was a bit of a head-scratcher. On June 4 at about 8pm, a pair of minor decoysâ€”an 18-year-old male and 19-year-old femaleâ€” entered Rodeo General Store in Makawao. The male approached the cashier ďŹ rst, with a six-pack of Corona, and presented his ID when asked. The clerk checked the ID â€œfor approximately four secondsâ€? according to Deputy Prosecutor John Tam and sold the decoy the beer. Moments later, the female approached the cashier with a sixpack of Bud Light and went through the exact same routine. Thatâ€™s when LC ofďŹ cers James Loy and Lorne Awai stepped in. Owner Darren Jones told the board the employee was one of his most reliable, and expressed disbelief that sheâ€™d failed not once, but twice to see the clearly printed â€œunder 21â€? banners on the IDs. Board Chair Donald Fujii asked Director Frank Silva how often two decoys are sent in, and Silva conďŹ rmed itâ€™s a rare occurrence, though he clariďŹ ed that itâ€™s treated as just one incident. That was the only good news for Rodeo General, which escaped with a $2,000 ďŹ ne, $1,000 suspended. â–

“We’re very pleased and honored to have President Obama’s outspoken support,” said Hanabusa in a prepared statement, trumpeted on the top banner of her campaign Web site. “With the President supporting Colleen, and Colleen supporting Hawaii, we have a chance to push back against the Republican culture of ‘no.’” Indeed, Obama’s endorsement features strong language championing Hanabusa, a change of pace from the special election, when Obama refused to back either Hanabusa or fellow Democrat Ed Case. Funny thing, tho though: the wording of Obama’s Hanabusa endorsement is identical to the en wording of his endorsement for Tom Perriello of Virginia, and Paul Kanjorski Pennsylvania, and John Carney of of Penn Delaware, and...well, you get the idea. Delaw Yes, O Obama feels so passionately about Hanabusa’s candidacy—and Perriello’s, Hana and Kanjorski’s, and Carney’s—that he sent out a mass e-mail, taking the time to ﬁnd and replace a half-dozen words. Now that’s commitment.

HOLE-ISTIC MEDICINE Doctors from the University of California, San Diego, and the University of Washington announced in September that they could just as well handle certain brain surgeries by access not in the traditional way through the top of the skull but by drilling holes in the nose and, more recently, the eye socket. (Since classic brain surgery requires that the top of the skull be temporarily removed, the breakthroughs mean fewer complications.) These innovations follow on the inroads in recent years in performing kidney-removal and gall-bladder surgery not by traditional abdominal incisions but through, respectively, the vagina and the anus.
MAMA GRIZZLY, INDEED In a heartwarming climax to an adopted son’s emotional search for his birth mother (who gave him up for adoption 33 years ago), Richard Lorenc of Kansas managed to track down mom Vivian Wheeler, 62, living in Bakersfield, California, where she is retired—as a circus-sideshow “bearded lady” (the result of hypertrichosis, also known as “werewolf syndrome”). Lorenc said he can see their similarities right through Wheeler’s beard, which she keeps now at a length of 11 inches. The relationship was to be confirmed by a DNA test paid for by the Maury Povich TV show, but at press time, the result had not been announced.
TEENAGERS ARE MESSED UP, PART 10,423 At least 13 percent of U.S. teenagers report having intentionally injured themselves as cries for help, and among the more extreme manifestations is “embedding”— the insertion of glass, wood, metal and other material, just under the skin. Writing in the October issue of the journal Radiology, a doctor at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, followed up on 11 cases involving 76 selfembedded objects in arms, neck, feet and hands, including an astonishing 35 placed by one boy (staples, parts of a comb, parts of a fork).
CHEER AND LOATHING Jennifer Tesch’s daughter, Kennedy, was kicked off her cheerleader squad (supporting a youth flag-football team)
in Madison Heights, Michigan, after complaining to her mother about the saucy language of one of the cheers in the girls’ repertoire: “Our backs ache!/Our skirts are too tight!/ We shake our booties!/From left to right!” Kennedy and Jennifer thought that was inappropriate, considering that Kennedy is 6 years old. The team, given the chance to renounce the cheer, voted in September to keep it and instead to punish Kennedy for taking the dispute public.
LOOPHOLY The older the religion, the seemingly more likely its practitioners are to adopt clever workarounds to theological obligations that modern society has rendered inconvenient. Orthodox Jews are among the most creative, as News of the Weird has demonstrated, reporting their imaginative treatments of divorce rituals and expanding the concept of the “home” in which practitioners must remain during the Sabbath. In September, in preparation for the Yom Kippur holy day, caffeine addicts—traditionally hard-hit by the day’s fasting requirement that prohibits ingesting anything “by mouth”— reportedly made a run on drug stores in Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York, to buy caffeine suppositories.
INCOMPETENT CRIMINALS Donald Denney and his father (also named Donald Denney) concocted a plan on the telephone for Dad to smuggle the son a ball of black-tar heroin into his Colorado prison (for eventual resale) during visiting hours, to be passed through the mouth by a deep kiss from a female visitor. However, Dad could not find a woman with a cleanenough record to be admitted as a visitor. Still enamored of the plan, however, the father decided to be the drug mule, himself, and inserted the packaged heroin into his rectum for later transferral to his mouth (even though the eventual deep kiss would be awkward). The Denneys were apparently unaware, despite audio warnings, that all the son’s phone calls were being monitored, and in September, prison officials were waiting for the father, with a body-cavity search warrant, as he entered the prison. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1417n

BRINGING BACK FROM THE DEAD Can three virtuosos resurrect Maui s progressive art scene? I ll never forget my ﬁrst art show experience on Maui. It was 2003, and I was visiting with friends living on the island. We were at the Maui County Fair, and the art was an assortment on display inside the Baldwin High School gymnasium. As I lingered there, taking in each piece, many of which were created by artists under the age of 18, an awe-struck feeling of appreciation and reverence for life on Maui came over me. The fact that students this young were making art this advanced said so much to me about the island and how it nurtures the creative energy inside all of us. On a gut level, it told me Maui would be a good place to live. A place that takes care of its artists must be a peaceful place, I posited. Visiting from my artsy Los Angeles neighborhood of 10 years, I was admittedly a bit of an art snob at the time and did not expect to ﬁnd this kind of reassurance in a high school gym. But there it was, fastened to a concrete wall next to the basketball hoop. I moved to Maui less than a year later, in time for the following year s County Fair. Seven years later, its safe to say I ve seen a lot of art on Maui. I spent several years selling art and doing public relations for galleries in Lahaina, and would spend hours walking up and down bustling Front Street on a Friday night, stopping into shops whenever an eye-catching piece drew me in. There is always so much to see there; the art saturation is so dense that it can be overwhelming. After I d seen all of it, though, I couldn t help but wonder: if this place is so good to its artists, where is the rest of the art scene? Where are the artists who push boundaries? Where is the pulse of modern progressive art, the edgy stuﬀ, the art that propels us toward our own personal freedom? Thankfully, I found answers to those questions.
It can take a lot of purposeful digging to ﬁnd the really great progressive art on Maui amongst the more dated, commercially-viable work that s marketed to tourists looking for a keepsake of their tropical vacation. That s not to say the landscapes and whales and ﬂowers aren t pretty̶they are, and many are done with care and
10 October 14, 2010
skill. But the really groundbreaking art is not always in the shop-front windows of the galleries, not always visible from the street. The art I m talking about isn t the kind that can predictably make a gallery owner a nice chunk of change every week, but the kind of art that changes you. Maui is such a hotbed of creativity, a home to artists who have something revolutionary to say̶when given the space to say it. Considered one of the top places in the world for art sales, Maui boasts dozens of galleries from shore to shore, containing all kinds of art for sale including sculpture, a variety of painting styles, jewelry, textiles, blown glass, wood crafts and pottery. The rich traditional handmade crafts of our host culture are also teeming with fantastic objects d art, whether they be tiki carvings made from our abundant tropical hardwoods, ancient petroglyphs displayed in the many caves, intricate weavings, beautiful quilts that tell a story in their squares, and a colorful variety of wearable art̶from tattoos to kapa cloth, feather capes and other ornaments worn by chiefs and kings. However, the majority of people visiting Maui s galleries will see a lot of the expected: airbrushed dolphins leaping in sync with a double moonbow; whale tails ﬂipping in perfect alignment with a setting sun framed by two palm trees; freshly plucked plumeria ﬂowers arranged in a still life in the sand. Hawaii has always had a particular style of art that people associate with the tropics and it is what many people expect to see, explains Marcy Lynn, exhibitions coordinator for the historic Hui No eau Visual Arts Center, a nonproﬁt arts organization that has̶ for 80 years ̶served the island s art community as both an exhibition space and a supportive center for developing artists of all ages. Enjoying progressive art on Maui requires getting out of the house (or hotel) and hitting the roads less traveled. Some of the best art venues are also some of the most unconventional: cafes, restaurants, bars, even tattoo shops. Despite the constant attraction of artists to the island, the progressive arts movement has meandered in and out of view. While Maui has attracted artists for
decades, there has always been a struggle for those who try to make a living with their craft. Many are faced with a diﬃcult challenge: making art that sells and can support them, while still chasing the muse into uncharted territory.
Recently, on my quest to be astonished, I found a trio of artists who are doing the kind of work I ve longed to see. Each, in their own way, is channeling a certain environmental Renaissance quality we re experiencing worldwide. Taking inspiration from the natural world̶animals, organisms and botanical subjects̶Jaisy Hanlon, Ghalib El-Khalidi and Cudra Clover channel an appreciation of the sciences through their art. Walking a ﬁne line between the two disciplines, their art brings us closer to our surroundings. When asked to comment on the trio, Marcy Lynn of the Hui No eau Arts Center says they all reach beyond what is known and expected to challenge the viewer to a new way of seeing and thinking about art and nature. I ﬁnd that very refreshing.
On display at the Hui until November 12, Jaisy Hanlon s solo exhibition, Factual Fiction: Imagined Landscapes, Hybrids, and Other Curiosities presents an environment the artist has intricately crafted by hand, an installation that unites her background in ﬁne art, science illustration and metalsmithing. Using a mixed media approach, Jaisy sculpts, precision cuts and paints a dreamscape, bringing to life a land where a surprisingly crisp, neon, hybridized collection of metal creatures (a bird with a rack of antlers, a giant
beetle, a wing that seems to ﬂy itself) ﬂoat oﬀ of the softly textured canvases and backgrounds. Her attention to detail in this rich, multilayered exhibition is evident̶she displays dramatically contrasted, large wall-mounted pieces along with miniature metal boxes left open to reveal tiny terrariums of objects, both natural and fabricated. Jaisy is incredibly thoughtful about her work. She has a unique artistic point of view, explains Lynn. Her love of natural history comes through in a totally new and exciting way. Her work is intelligent, whimsical and intriguing, a diﬀerent take on what most associate with nature art in Hawaii. During my daytime visit to the exhibition, Lynn explained that many of Jaisy s pieces contain elements that glow in the dark. A spider here, a lone bear there̶were they displayed in my home̶would be all that was left of the art when the lights went out. When a new show at the Paia Tattoo Parlor recently opened on Maui, I heard more buzz than I had in a long time. People were talking as if some mysterious, nameless artist had suddenly descended upon Maui. Of course, I had to ﬁnd out what was going on. Turns out the artist has a name̶ Ghalib El-Khalidi. And while he s been living on Maui working as a science illustrator and student for years, this was his ﬁrst art show ever. So the rumors were partly true: he is brand new and his work is deﬁnitely from someplace else. Spending time at the recently closed Paia Tattoo exhibition, A Cabinet of Curiosities, it was hard to believe this was a rookie attempt. Ghalib s imagined creatures, all hand-made̶ﬁrst with foil, then covered with polymer̶are hybrids of several lifeforms merged into one. A tusk here, a third eye there, whiskers everywhere; I vacillated between wanting to make them my pets and running away in fear. They re all mounted to varnished wooden plaques, and each species is given a name, like Spider Urchin or Tusked Ginch. Ghalib is also a skilled illustrator, and he displayed a number of drawings in his show. An entire wall was dedicated to Assorted Arthropods, invented insects as creatively divined as their sculpted brethren.
Ask silk artist Cudra Clover about beauty and art on Maui, and she has a lot to say. I think no more ugliness should be allowed̶it should be illegal to build any more ugly strip malls, no more parking lots, no more ugly signs, no more obnoxious hotels that have no character. It s so dumb when we have so many artists on this island̶especially ones that could use the work̶to put up a hotel that looks like any other hotel on the side of a highway, or a strip mall with all the same stores and signage as somewhere in Indiana. We are Maui, we are known for our beauty here, yet we continue to destroy it, or let it be destroyed by people who value instant money over lasting beauty. Cudra s Haiku art studio is ﬁlled with countless pots of colorful paint, giant sheets of silk and images of the cells of plants and underwater coral reefs, tiny creatures and strange microscopic objects. She may be depicting the same things you see in many mainstream paintings, but she is doing it very diﬀerently. First of all, she s painting on silk̶a delicate, unforgiving medium. She s also painting living things found in nature from a perspective that can t be seen by the naked eye. Lastly, she is taking an age-old painting tradition (with origins in India s 2nd Century) in a bold, modern direction.
Her most recent piece, submitted to the Malama Wao Akua Viewpoints exhibition, took the jury prize for twodimensional art, beating out dozens of paintings done on traditional canvas that usually dominate the category. Her winning piece depicted the Haleakala Silversword and a native sea lettuce at the cellular level, melding two specimens on a giant petri dish of ﬁne silk fabric. Silk painting requires an entirely diﬀerent thought process than painting with acrylic or oil, says Cudra. Once you put something down on silk, it s there̶you must commit to it. Many silk painters completely plan out their pieces before they commit to a single stroke. But I prefer the unexpected and am inspired by the surprises that unfold. To me, silk art is an intuitive and symbiotic process. Rather than exerting complete control over the artistic process, I work with the piece. I am not the master; the art and I take turns calling the shots. ■

West Side Story Jurg Munch on food trends, foie gras and balancing the old with the new Lahaina Grill 127 Lahainaluna Road, Lahaina 667-5117
ecently, I caught up with Jurg Munch, owner of Lahaina Grill. Munch had a lot to say about what makes things tick at his West side bistro, which is celebrating 20 years in business by offering 50 percent off entrees on the 20th of every month. Tell me about your journey as a chef. I had an interest at an early age. My father and mother both enjoyed food and entertaining. I got my start as an apprentice in Zurich, Switzerland at the Hotel Zum Storchen. After that I worked at the Hotel Jungfrau Victoria in Interlaken and the restaurant Chez Max in Zurich. I always had an interest in Asia and Asian food, which brought me to an opportunity in Hong Kong in 1980, as a sous chef at the Excelsior Hotel, a Mandarin Oriental property. I returned to Switzerland to earn my degree in hotel and catering management at the Belvoirpark Hotel School in Zurich and after that to Macau as executive chef for the opening of the grand Oriental Macau hotel. In 1986, I started at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hong Kong as executive sous chef. After a short while, I became executive chef. This job came with a huge amount of stressâ€”eight restaurants to oversee and we were serving 3,000 meals per day, catering to eight in-house restaurants, employing a crew of 120 chefs. I remember on holidays we served
over 2,000 pounds of turkey! That was definitely a sight to see. After 17 years at the Mandarin, my wife Linda and I took time to travel and wound up on Maui. Now, 13 years later, it is home.
to the fresh fish and farm fresh ingredients, which has really expanded in the past ten years. This is a huge priority [for] our team and in our menu planning; we always try to source local ingredients.
Whoâ€™s the executive chef at Lahaina Grill? Who else is key in the kitchen? Our executive chef is Arnulfo â€œArnieâ€? Gonzalez and he has been with us for 18 years; Iâ€™m the chef/owner and I just marked my tenth year at 127 Lahainaluna Road. [Gonzales] gets all of the credit as far as I am concerned, night after night. Our sous chef, Uriel Perez, is very talented as well; he has been with us for just over eight years and continues to wow us with his creativity.
What does contemporary bistro cuisine mean to you? What are some current trends? Our team strives to create a dining experience where you can have a classic bistro setting with comfortable, familiar food and then we try to add fun, contemporary dishes to keep it interesting while using the best local, seasonal ingredients. We have recently seen an increased demand from our guests for prime meatâ€” steaks and dry-aged meat. Chef Arnie and
Do you have a favorite dish on the menu? I have really been enjoying a recent addition, our certified Angus beef dry-aged bone-in ribeye. We are constantly testing and blind tasting the meats for quality. This meat is so much tastier, for steak fans there really is nothing better. At home, I tend to cook very clean with few ingredients and try to eat fairly healthy, so when I go for complete comfort food I indulge with our Marcho Farms Center cut veal â€œosso bucoâ€? which is a slow-braised veal shank in a cabarnet sauce; it just falls apart with a fork, no knife needed. With the rise of the locavore movement, have you changed your menu in any way to include more local ingredients? One of the reasons I loved Maui and Hawaii from the beginning was the access
I have worked to seek out exceptional suppliers to add new cuts to our menu. Also comfort food and the old classicsâ€”escargots, French onion soup, braised short ribsâ€”seem to be in high demand with our guests, and around the current culinary world. How do you balance 20 years of recipes and peopleâ€™s expectation for familiar dishes with a desire to innovate? We have kept old favorites from day one and improved and refined those old stand-bys, but honestly, my favorite times are when Arnie and I get going and spend hours in the kitchen trying new things, new ingredients, new ideas. When they hit the specials board and the guests enjoy the flavors, that is the icing on the cake. Foie Gras is controversial. How do you feel about the issue? Why do you keep it on the menu? I know that globally there are ingredients that are controversial, but I really feel that each person decides what they order, and others do not have to order it. Your dishes play on different shapes, which often lend texture and nuance. Talk about this technique. Chef Arnie and his team work hard to create food that tastes wonderful, and the presentation really is part of the overall dining experience. When you see a plate of food that has been prepared and placed with intention, you already are anticipating the first bite and how it might taste. Beauty is part of a great meal.

In Defense of Chardonnay I Think the California white is for unsophisticated palates only? Think again n a fancy restaurant somewhere in Hawaii, a well-dressed woman tells the waiter, “I would love a glass of Chablis.” The server swiftly responds with, “I’m sorry, we don’t offer Chablis by the glass but we do have a wonderful unoaked California chardonnay that might be a perfect substitute.” Response: “Oh…I absolutely hate chardonnay.” It seems our knee-jerk reaction to chardonnay has become so quick we even hate it when we order it (so we are all on the same page, the grape used in Chablis, France, is chardonnay, but more on that later). It’s a shame that chardonnay, our most successful venture in California, has become faux pas among the wine cognoscenti and wannabes alike. And it’s all my fault. I followed the same path as most wine professionals. I began drinking the stuff, moved on to more esoteric grape varieties and then started soap boxing against California chardonnay in my restaurants at every opportunity. I would have preferred force-feeding my guests bottles of obscure Italian greco di tufo than—gasp!—allow them to knock back another glass of boring old Cali chard. I was wrong. Chardonnay is our national wine treasure. When one is sitting in a villa in northern Italy, the wine that must be ordered is prosecco. When dining in Bordeaux, it would be a shame not to have a bottle of Third Growth on the table. In Spain, Rioja is the thing. Therefore, it is completely reasonable that chardonnay should be the beverage of choice in domestic wine rooms. I have returned to my homeland armed with the knowledge that chardonnay has never been better. Even moderately priced producers are utilizing new and expensive oak barrels, complete with their requisite
toasty-vanilla aromas and silky-creamy textures. California winemakers have begun to hone their years of experience with this grape and are producing greater expressions of fruit and terroir. Even the cuisine of Hawaii is quite suited to this type of wine, despite many snobby comments to the contrary. For the quintessential proof, one need only taste macadamia crusted Mahi Mahi in a citrus buerre blanc with a glass of Santa Barbara chardonnay to become a convert. California chardonnay is good, and with the possible exception of cabernet sauvignon, it’s the best thing we do in our own backyard. For those who have become disenfranchised by the high level of oak employed in California examples, the chardonnays of France offer the opportunity to return to this noble grape.
The overwhelming majority have little oak influence, translating to a more crisp, citrus flavor with a hint of minerality. This flavor profile—when teamed up with zesty acidity— creates a food-friendly glass of wine. Look to Chablis for the most clean example and move on to Burgundy when you have the money. Great Burgundy has the ability to change many things, especially opinions. Outside of France and the U.S., chardonnay has performed well in a handful of other regions. Most notably, Australia, New Zealand and Chile have all contributed excellent examples of New World style chardonnay. Possessing the voluptuous body and fruit-forward character of their California cousins with a touch less oak, the Southern Hemisphere is a great adventure across all price levels for this grape.

Recommendations: Louis Latour ‘Ardèche’ chardonnay, Vin de Pays des Coteaux de l’Ardèche, France, $15 Despite the difficult name, this version is a great introduction to French style for a fraction of the price of Burgundy. Cambria ‘Katherine’s Vineyard’ chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley, CA, $20 A classic example of California juice and style. Think of the famous Kendall-Jackson with an extra degree of finesse and complexity. Stonestreet ‘Upper Barn’ chardonnay, Alexander Valley, CA, $35 The textbook big oak, big butter, big fruit, high-end California chardonnay. Everyone loves this wine. Kumeu River ‘Village’ chardonnay, Kumeu, New Zealand, $25 Strikes the perfect balance between New World fruit and Old World sleekness. Always highly rated, Kumeu River is constantly mistaken for top-notch Burgundy in blind tastings. Cass is a certified sommelier, certified specialist of wine and certified specialist of spirits.

For the true explorer, a few established houses in Tuscany, Italy, have experimented with the most famous of white grapes. The result is a unique combination of earthyfunk and bright, round fruit. The time has come to resurrect chardonnay on your dining room table, especially the California version. This holds true even if you’re in your South African chenin blanc phase.

‘Red’ On Arrival Lifeless action comedy wastes an all-star cast Red
Rated PG13/111 min.
ometimes, a film provides a group of actors with the perfect vehicle for their talents, perhaps even helping resuscitate their careers. Then there are movies like Red, a dud of an action comedy that squanders an outstanding cast. Bruce Willis stars as a RED, which stands for “Retired and Extremely Dangerous.” He’s a former secret agent who reunites with his old crew (played by Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman and John Malkovich) to take down a couple of corrupt bad guys (Karl Urban and Richard Dreyfuss). The early scenes are promising: Willis has a crush on a customerservice worker (Mary Louise Parker) he has only spoken to over the phone and he suggests they take the next step and meet one another. The question of whether they’ll meet is intriguing, even if he wasn’t a RED agent. Unfortunately, once Parker enters the film, her
16 October 14, 2010
character seems to develop a severe case of Stockholm syndrome, conveniently falling for RED despite the fact that he kidnaps her, and their relationship only gets less believable and interesting from there. Parker is a wonderful actress who can hold the screen with Willis, so why is she reduced to the role of damsel in distress? The character and performer are misused—and so is everyone else. The gimmick is the Grumpy Old Killers angle, with the sight of a game Mirren and a hammy Malkovich shooting up a restaurant kitchen the obvious highlight and one of the few memorable moments. But why did Mirren wait until now to make a stupid action movie (and why this one?) and when did Malkovich go the Christopher Walken self-parody route? Watching these middleaged acting giants attempt to play living action figures is like watching your mom fumble through a first-person shooter video game: it’s cute but you’re not buying it. Willis isn’t really playing a role—his part is simply an opportunity to acknowledge his iconic status, something he’s already

done twice this year, in Cop Out and The Expendables. Freeman once again slums it in a movie that doesn’t deserve his considerable presence. Dreyfuss, Urban and Rebecca Pidgeon also have parts that could and should have been taken by lesser actors. Like half of the movies in theaters these days, this is based on a graphic novel, but whatever worked on paper didn’t make it to the big screen. It’s never very exciting or funny, yet so self-satisfied, it seems to be
saying, “Behold, a franchise is born!” One can argue that Willis, Freeman, Mirren and Malkovich have played so many complex, tortured souls, they deserve the chance to cut loose in a brainless time-killer. The problem is, if you take away the brains, you have to replace them with something. ■ To share or save this article, type: mt.hy.pr/1417f
